Rocker Tommy Lee, best known for his tape with Pamela Anderson and drumming for Motley Crue, is upset that Travis Scott’s Astroworld tour looks oddly familiar. Lee took to social media posting side by side videos of the roller coasters in action saying,” Just found out this fucking idiot @travisscott or someone on his team ripped off the 360 AND The Crüecifly! WTF!! Get an original idea bro…”
There are two sets in question and Lee says, “I get copying is a form of flattery, but this is just straight ripping off my shit.” Lorde also recently accused Kanye West of ripping off her set design but really it was the designer that had been using the floating box concept for awhile now. Same thing happened with Scott, he used the same designer as Tommy Lee so really they should be to blame for the unoriginal recycled idea.
Travis’ lawyer told TMZ, “Tommy didn’t invent the concept of a roller coaster on stage and there’s no legal basis for his accusatory outburst. The actual creator and owner of the system has granted Travis all rights to use that equipment to complement his original stage design.” Lee replied with,” After I and our production crew created the 360 and Crüecify, We hired a company called SGPS in Las Vegas to create it. WELLLLL GUESS WHO’S DOING TRAVIS’S SET DESIGN???? F**king SGPS!”
